~ Edited this original post to say: No exact ID was ever learned, so I'm leaving it as Echeverias (Echeveria)

I bought a little Echiveria a year or so ago that was labeled Echiveria 'Sunburst' but I haven't been able to find anything with this name when searching the net. I don't know a thing about cacti and succulents so I hope someone recognizes this one. I don't have the plant anymore, I gave it to a niece with other succulent type plants ... but I have a picture to upload to the database if I can find the correct identification. Two photo's - different lighting:

Most likely the name Sunburst was added by the nursery. Echeverias can be hard to ID unless they are distinct.

Thanks Sue! I gave it to my niece and thought if I could find an exact name I'd let her know, but I will leave it as E. 'Sunburst'.

I found this description of Sunburst.
"Dick Wright's hybrid of Echeveria colorata x Echeveria cuspidata, which he called Echeveria 'Tippy', also known as Echeveria 'Sunburst'. "
Here is the page I found it on.

Ahh, those AKA will get you every time! Unfortunately, Lin's isn't Tippy, which has the dark tips on the leaves.
From that site, this is what is labeled as Tippy/Sunburst http://crassulaceae.net/forum/...

Here's my image of Tippy

Sue, I agree, mine doesn't look anything like 'Tippy' a/k/a 'Sunburst' ... so it will remain just Echeveria, LOL.
